The Press Ombudsman has delivered a scathing judgment against the Sunday Times for its reporting on the so-called rogue unit in the SA Revenue Service, saying it was unfair and inaccurate.
Stephen Grootes on Thursday spoke to Mohamed Husain, the legal representative of the implicated Sars executives, Ivan Pillay and Johan van Loggerenberg.
My clients got substantially what they wanted... The Ombudsman found that the Sunday Times had acted improperly.— Mohamed Husain, legal representative

The key thing is that none of the three implicated (Ivan Pillay, Johan van Loggerenberg and Pravin Gordhan) in the report were contacted for comment.— Mohamed Husain, legal representative
